Take Profit!

I invested in Maidsafe’s crowdsale in early 2014.

Between then and now I have sold over 70% of my holdings.

Why have I sold over 70% of my holdings?

Well, partly for the gains. Prices have always been at least 8x more than purchase price. But, primarily I have sold for these reasons:

Concerning Economics

The following is a (partially edited) copy of a post I made on safenetforum.org in February 2018.

I want to have a copy to point to on this blog as it accurately outlines my thinking in regard to the Safe Network’s proposed economics.

TL;DR
Any network that proposes to use economic incentives to store/deliver/secure data is an economic system first and a technical implementation second.

That means you better be sure you got the incentives right before you start building.

I’m not convinced Maidsafe’s Safe Network has a clear, defined path moving forward when it comes to incentives. Read on to get my full thoughts.

Maidsafe, the SAFE Network and safecoin explained

Maidsafe's safecoin crowd sale sold out in only 5 hours! Read about it here.

Maidsafe is a company that is developing the SAFE network which is a proposed peer to peer storage and communication platform that could completely change how we use the internet.

Bold claim, broad scope. Maidsafe appear not to deal with timidity.

I hear you ask, ‘but what’s wrong with the features of our current Internet? I can buy stuff, build stuff, share stuff and pleasure myself using it. I can’t imagine it being much better.’

I see where you’re coming from, and I must say, compared to what existed before the internet (very little?), it seems trivial to try and improve a technology that has made arguably the greatest contribution to the freedom and wealth of individuals on this planet.

Then Maidsafe struts in and proposes that it is designing the next logical internet iteration, suggesting our current product is far from its potential.

What’s the investment relevance? If you bear with me, I’ll build you up to it. Continue reading
